We talked with Matty, Nicholas & George of Shirese this month! Lots of real CT insider talk in this one. I tried to insert context when needed. The New Hawaii, Popeye’s Garage, the Osbourne House and more DIY spots of yore! Rock and Roll gets heralded as well as some jazz fusion. Good times.
Shirese has a new record and played a great show at Cafe 9 in celebration of its release so we talk about that at length. And we just jaw on about any given subject – like music for instance.
Lumpy (Andrew Wojcik) from the Daze label, King Nine, Sanction, Out for Justice and a bunch of bands joins us this month. We talk about the bands briefly. We talk about starting and running a label since 2019. And we talk about coffee and pizza. If you had ever wondered what it would be like if we hosted a food podcast this is as close as we get!
We talk about how great CDs actually are and what makes a great CD package. We talk about merch that references specific CT institutions and how they are sold almost exclusively at fests out of state! We talk about the music we’re listening to as well of course and veer off (in mostly food directions).
This month we talked with Greg Thomas of Silver Bullet Studios, End and myriad musical projects. We really just scratch the surface with Greg and it’s a great talk chalk full of knowledge nuggets. What a Colossal (wink, nudge) interview!
We talk about some of the music we’re listening to and Greg drops lots of teasers on upcoming recordings. New With Honor. New Murmur. Will the Risk Taken album come out for the 20th Anniversaryof the studio next year?! Should it?! Pressing questions that a select few forgot they cared about!(SIC) And then we talk about shipping for a while (so much that I cut some of it out!). And then more music!
It is time for our list of favorites from the past year! We asked everyone here at the shop if they’d like to submit a list and 5/6 of us did! [UPDATE: Photini sent us a list and an updated pic – check the end of the post! 6/6] Josh and I are joined by our shipping specialist Caleb and we also read from Caren’s and Lexi’s lists. We mention our releases from the past year at the top of it and finish off with some live shows we enjoyed. This is a music heavy / heavily edited show so please enjoy it all! If you enjoy it and want to hear some more let us know if you’d like it as a playlist and maybe we’ll share that!
Silas, Tate and Reena are The Problem With Kids Today. They’re also a band of the same name (wocka wocka). We talk to them about all the usual musical topics specific to them and their band. We talk about Sesame Street, Dora and various early musical memories as well as Reena’s vlogging dad and Tate’s Miracle Legion connection and building a shed instead of getting a job with Silas and various other divergent topics as it goes. And we start with the music we’re listening to of course.
